MATCH PREVIEW: Velenje and Skjern are aiming for a successful happy-end in Berlin
A debut duel for the third rank
To face for the third place in any final four tournament is always a matter of motivation, power and will – so Skjern Handbold and Gorenje Velenje want to prove those three keys on Sunday in Berlin, when they lock their horns for the third position of the 2015 EHF Cup Finals.
Both coaches mentioned that they have to get rid of thoughts about disappointment to finish the EHF Cup Finals successfully.
“We have to get our heads free, relax and then go for the victory,” said Gorenje coach Gregor Cvijic.
Skjern team captain Henrik Möllgaard hopes to make their fans happy: “They came such a long way to Berlin and they supported us in a great way. On Sunday we have to pay-back to them.”
From the tactical point of view, Gorenje play more Scandinavian with counter-attacks than Skjern, which count more on powerful shooters and defence.
No matter what the result of this match will be, Velenje playmaker Stas Skube will be probably able to find little solace in an individual achievement as he is with 77 goals all but confirmed as the EHF Cup top scorer leading by 18 goals ahead of Kentin Mahe from Hamburg.
